    Hello. I'm using Comodo internet 2011 and sandboxie. Malwarebytes free on demand. This is enough isn't it?:cool:

    I think it is but obviously it all depends and for some all the security software can't prevent malware incursion

    Yeah its enough. You might want to look at the sandboxie hardening thread over at virtualization. You have a HIPS, Firewall, AV and sandbox. You also have MBAM for file check/scans.

    Sandboxie alone is enough if properly configured :thumb:

    I just started using sandboxie. I'm thinking also that it is enough protection if it's configured according to your usage. I've got avast free as a backup just in case.

    To me is more than enough. Right now all I am running real time is a
    hardened Sandbox to the max and Windows firewall. Read the thread
    about hardening that was suggested by kjdemuth and you will be fine.

    Just be careful that on some setups, CIS can conflict with Sandboxie and instead reduce protection...

    Check the Sandboxie and Comodo forums respectively. Or just Google for "sandboxie comodo conflict".

    I like CIS, but if you want an higher security level, use CIS without his sandbox and a complete sw of sandboxing or virtualisation.

    Your on board security is probably enough but you may want to consider another layer of defense by having a backup/restore plan for your files. I recently started backing up my files online (in addition to a portable hard drive) and it feels so much better, security wise. An image of your system would probably be a good idea as well. There are plenty of free and paid options available for both backup and image strategies.
